Pretty funny awkward PSA here about the benefits of hugging from Andrew Garfield and Jo Hart. They went ham on a 90s low-production feel and it’s pretty cool that this was actually done for Youth Mentoring, an organization that helps at-risk youth in LA and is encouraging both donations and uploads of 20 second hugs through the end of the year. Never forget the power of humor, even for social good.

Heartbreaking events put a major buzzkill on this past week. They are not the first, nor the last, but what I do know is we have to continue to spread love and positivity, not fear and hate. If you won’t heed my advice, take a look at Andrew W.K.’s party tips on Twitter. They are lovely injections of optimism that will make you smile. And for those with an attention span, make sure to read his advice column in the Village Voice. It’s beautiful.
PARTY TIP: Stay strong. Send love. Hug people.
